• Two points;1. In Qantas terms, this means they'll probably do something just under what is currently flying in Emirates, SIA et al right now. 2. Maybe just maybe, project sunrise is not going to be the 777x or A350. Maybe it will be the 789, with additional fuel tanks. With Air NZ operating A...

  • I'd say not. The A380s have sub 10 years left in the fleet. I'd say they'll be gone sooner.

  • Qantas are at an inflection point when it comes to their fleet. Looking out 10 years, apart from the 787s, the rest will start needing replacement. This is an enormous opportunity for them to drive costs down via a bulk deal, but also improve fleet commonality to bring in all those additional b...

  • Qantas are all about collecting your personal data. Don't do it people. Don't take their cards, their insurance and so on.

  • Qantas groups future; A350, B787, A321/320, A223. A380s for the remaining decade then will go as part of a deal to get more 350s in.

  • Sydney to NYC with the family

    I do this trip twice a year, sometimes out of BNE sometimes out of SYD.First up, depends on what class you're flying. If it's business or PE, then VA is hands down the better of the two for the SYD - LAX leg. If it's economy, then they are pretty similar. They both use 9 abreast 777s, but I prefe...

  • For o/s I always take out a 3rd policy and don't rely on the cc insurance. One thing I'd suggest is consider taking out an annual 3rd party travel insurance policy. As it turned out, in the past 12 months we've had 2 extensive O/S trips, and 3 domestic ones. All for personal reasons. I just t...

  • So, it wasn't just me then, and I'm glad I cancelled and went with the ANZ instead.Looking at this experience, and the fact they now have a health monitoring app, and other mechanisms to collect data, I'm going to steer clear of Qantas group for anything but flying and FF points associated with t...
